Liquid Robotics Showcasing New SHARC SV3 at Upcoming International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference (IMDEX Asia) 2013

Solutions for Real Time Sentinel Security, Subsea-to-Space Communications, MPA/EEZ Protection and Severe Weather Monitoring

SUNNYVALE, CA--(May 5, 2013) -


WHO: Liquid Robotics, a global ocean data services provider and developer of the world's first wave and solar powered autonomous surface vehicles, with global headquarters in Sunnyvale, CA, USA.

WHAT: Inaugural exhibition at Asia Pacific's flagship Maritime Defence show, IMDEX 2013. Liquid Robotics is making their debut and introducing to Asia Pacific Defence Maritime community the SHARC SV Series featuring the SHARC SV3, the world's first hybrid wave and solar propelled unmanned surface vehicle.

WHEN: 14-16, May 2013

WHERE: Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore, Liquid Robotics Booth #J24

WHY: The world's navies are continually challenged to patrol and secure greater geographic expanses through the harshest of weather conditions, 365 days a year. Shrinking budgets, operational constraints and changing mission requirements are requiring more cost effective and innovative solutions for maritime defence. Liquid Robotics' technologies and data services offerings can help solve these challenges. Through the use of the world's first wave and solar propelled autonomous surface vehicle, Liquid Robotics provides affordable solutions for defence applications ranging from protection of MPAs and EEZs to Maritime Domain Awareness.

The award winning SHARC (Defence brand for the Wave Glider) can patrol through all weather conditions (survived 5 hurricanes and 3 cyclones), last at sea for up to a year and provide real time subsea-to-space security monitoring and communications at 1/10th the cost of today's alternatives.

Come meet the SHARC SV3 and learn more about how Liquid Robotics may address your mission requirements.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
